CM Punk’s return to WWE at Survivor Series: WarGames was met with enthusiasm from the WWE Universe, but not from World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins. Rollins was visibly displeased and vocal about his feelings towards Punk, hinting at a potential rivalry between the two. There are talks about the possibility of CM Punk forming a faction with The Authors of Pain to challenge Rollins for the championship, as rumors suggest the tag team has been re-signed by WWE.
While the idea of this faction remains speculative, it aligns with Punk’s history of leading groups in WWE. A partnership with The Authors of Pain could provide the 45-year-old with a formidable force to take on Rollins and add an interesting dynamic to the storyline.
Despite earlier doubts stemming from Punk’s contentious departure in 2014, his return at Survivor Series: WarGames surprised many. WWE’s Triple H even spoke positively about the controversial figure, acknowledging his ability to spark conversation. The mending of their relationship opens up new possibilities for Punk in his return to the wrestling promotion.
